Breaux, Lott to Stay at Squire Patton for Another Year

Washington’s two most eligible lobbyists are off the market for another year. Former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott and former Senator John Breaux, who co-chair the public policy practice at Squire Patton Boggs, have signed a one-year extension with the firm. Their contract was set to expire this month.

If Breaux and Lott had left this year, a noncompete agreement would have restricted them from working for Squire Patton Boggs clients—aka their clients—for a year. The noncompete agreement will end at the same time as their new contract does in 2016, so they would be free to consider more professional options next spring, according to four people familiar with the agreement.
